. >> with a booming economy we are going to have under romney we will have some much money we won't know where to spend it. and the military -- [applause] john: i'm mong on. here is something your candid set the debate that appalled me. [laughter] >> i'm not going to cut education funding. i don't have any plan to cut education funding. john: education is supposed o be a local responsibility. the federal government spending $100 billion wasting it, he can't even get that? >> this is unfair. you know i admitted to you in the greenroom. this was the one even couldn't defend. [laughter] but i will just say romney has said in his defense and education over and over again that, for example, with the money for disabled kids where kids with special needs. we will send that money to the parents to let them spend -- pick te school. he said we will send the money back to the local government, the state government. unfortunately i know we are not just fascinating to washington. i know him but he has to get elected. this will be a procs of sending it back to the states which is where it should have been
is that romney always wanted this campaign to be a referendum. you feel bad about the economy, give me a try, i'm a little more moderate than you think. but as the economic numbers have gotten better, as people have watched the president in the last week and it's been an extraordinary week, romney's argument loses its force and it also loses its force in states like ohio, the midwest, a lot of these battleground states where the president defined romney throughout this summer and that definition has stuck and that's why i think they can't move ohio. >> now, let's talk about this week. what impact did this week hurricane sandy have on how the president handled this and the jobs number? just the last several days, this week, what is the impact, in your opinion, on this election? >> before i do the politics, your hearts have to go out to people who have lost everything. >> no doubt. and you're hearing more and more stories. >> and the president's response has been extraordinary. i do have to say, who thought the october surprise would be chris christie, who stepped up to the plate, who said what h
. analysts say more people without jobs started looking for work, 171,000 new jobs were added to the economy. katie marzullo is in the newsroom with the way president obama and mitt romney are spinning numbers. >> reporter: as it turns out the numbers landed in some grey area giving both something to seize upon to benefit their own campaign. >> the president: hello ohio! >> reporter: despite the small rise in the unemployment rate president obama pumped up ohio this morning. >> the president: today our businesses created nearly 5 1/2 million new jobs. companies hired more workers in october than any time in the last eight months. >> reporter: the president admits there is more work to be done. but says this is a pattern of real progress that includes a stronger auto industry, thanks to his bailout. romney is ing the numbers another way at a rally in wisconsin this morning he said the report is a sad reminder that the economy is at a virtual standstill. >> he said he was going to lower the unemployment rate down to 5.2%. today it is 7.9% and that's nine million jobs short of what he promised.
important issue. while only 23% said immigration. no wonder that romney emphasized economy in september interview with univision. >> there are 2 million more hispanics in post officeerty today than when the president took office. we have had 56 straight months with unemployment above 10% for hispanic-americans. unacceptable. >> bush got 44% of the hispanic vote in 2004. polls show romney getting a little more than half that. bret? >> bret: jim, thanks. still ahead -- look at some of the big-time gaffes made by the vice president in recent days that have gone under the radar. first, transportation woes continue in the wake of sandy. ford c-max hybrid. when you're carrying a lot of weight, c-max has a nice little trait, you see, c-max helps you load your freight, with its foot-activated lift gate. but that's not all you'll see, cause c-max also beats prius v, with better mpg. say hi to the all-new 47 combined mpg c-max hybrid. [ male announcer ] it's time for medicare open enrollment. are you ready? time to compare plans and see what's new. you don't have to make changes, but it's good to
're going to win it. >> let's dig into that abc news/washington post, stephanie, it shows romney making headway on the economy. back in july, obama had a 16-point lead on that measure. today, it's tied. did you wait too long? >> absolutely not. i mean, you know, it's interesting that you're pointing out your national tracker poll but in the virginia poll that you just cited we are beating romney in terms of who do you trust to get the economy going? in terms of the president's plans, we're happy to talk about them. we ran a two-minute ad on it. we have been campaigning across the country on this plan. you know, whether it's putting the best trained workers all over this country. bringing jobs back to this country. rather than sending them overseas or doing some nation-building at home. we're ending two wars. these are big plans and the president laid them out at the convention and it's a second term of an obama presidency will mean. it stands in sharp contrast to romney romney's. we can look at these polls a million different ways. they all say something different. at the end of the day
an argument for economic freedom and talked about the difference between the real economy that mitt romney participated in and succeeded in and the solyndra economy of president where you fund favored enterprises. >> when we come back president obama revamps his stump speech, taking credit for recent positive signs in the economy. but is our outlook that rosy? our panel takes a closer look next. ooooooooooif we want to ime our schools... ... what should we invest in? maybe new buildings? what about updated equipment? they can help, but recent research shows... ... nothing transforms schools like investing in advanced teacher education. let's build a strong foundation. let's invest in our teachers so they can inspire our students. let's solve this. >>> after losing nine million jobs in the great recession, our businesses have now add more than five million jobs over the past two and a half years, manufacturing is at its highest level since the '90s, unemployment has fallen to hit lowest level since i took office. home sales are rising, asemi lines are humming again. >> that as president oba
, and connie mack will also be appearing with mitt romney. turning to the economy, matthew rutherford in a statement earlier said the treasury still expects the government will hit the current debt and borrowing limit at the end of the year. he says treasury will employ the same types of procedures that it has used in the past to keep borrowing under the current debt limit of 16.39 trillion. the nation's debt currently stands at 16.16 trillion. the united states has never failed to meet its debt obligations, although the last battle over the raising of the debt ceiling in august 2011 went to the last minute before compromise must -- compromise was reached. those are some of the latest headlines on c-span radio. >> i especially like watching gavel-to-gavel coverage. the only place to get the real deal. i also enjoyed "newsmakers." i like the commentary is only intended to let you know what is going on. there is not really too much analysis. i appreciate how i can really see through and understand the program itself. and i can get my analysis elsewhere. if you want to see how your gover
with the romney campaign that connects even to the very basic issues like the economy in the states where it most matters. >> and carly fiorina, from the other side you have governor romney not focusing on trust, saying look at the record. do you want another four years like what we've had? this is how he's teeing it up down the stretch. >> this is not the time to s double down on the trickle-down policies that have failed us. it's time for new bold changes that will bring american families the certainty that the future will be better than the past. >> we're going to talk to governor kasich in a moment, 7%p unemployment in that state. how much credit does the president deserve for improving conditions in important battleground states? >> well, that important battleground state has a republican governor. that's done exactly the opposite of what obama claims he's going to do. that is he's lowered taxes and closed budget deficits. but i actually find the trust argument very odd. because president obama promised that we would have 4.2% economic growth right now.wo we have 2%. he promised an unemploym
. the problem for mitt romney is the economy is getting better. consumer confidence is up. most people understand that. and so mitt romney all along the way, particularly over the last four or five months, has had to recalibrate his campaign. remember his campaign originally was based on the notion that the economy was in terrible shape, most people understood that and he was a better custodian of the economy. but as the economy has started to show signs of getting better and better, mitt romney has had to throw anything at the wall and see what sticks. he's taken to saying that, oh, well, mitt romney's responsible he says for the bailout of chrysler and gm. mitt romney says that the $716 billion that he wanted to take out of medicare is actually the $716 billion that barack obama is going to reduce medicare by. in other words, he is using up his air time and doing whatever he needs to do, saying whatever he needs to say in order to win some voters in one of the crassest displays of duplicity i frankly remember in a presidential campaign. >> professor robert reich, as ever, thank you,
romney because of the economy but if you get them thinking about adorgs and the social issues, then they lean back toward obama. so if they can just make these women voters have that issue at the top of their minds instead of the economy, that's what's going to sway them. gwen: here's an issue that's not on the top of anyone's mind. even though it was the subject of the final foreign policy debate, which was this week though it feels like it was months ago. at the end it was clear both had a strategy goinging in and it had very little to do with talking about the u.s. foreign policy. >> right. there was the expected clash of world views. romney has been bush -- pushing the idea of american exceptionalism, the very muscular view of foreign policy, pushing, and right down the line , but that romney didn't show up for the debate. he pulled himself very close to president obama's positions on pulling the troops out of afghanistan in 2014, on not introducing military forces into the crisis in syria, on crippling sanctions in iran and it was really stunning. gwen: did the specifics
is doing so were better in ohio. people are focused on the economy and jobs and mitt romney has a land that is pro growth and pro jobs and president obama doesn't. when you look at the last four years they are disappointed. we are living through the weakest economic recovery since the great depression, there are 22 million americans struggling to find works and 3.5 million more women in poverty. take home pay has gone down $4,300 per family. president obama has the glossy brochure and i have looked at that brochure and i layed this role of obama during the debate preparation and it is more of the same. you can argue we need to do more of the same but it hasn't worked and it hasn't worked by president obama's own measurement, saying unemployment would be 15 percent lower if we passed the stimulus package. he said economic growth today would be two-thirds higher than it is. so, it hasn't worked. the one thing he does have in his new proposal is to raise taxes. yes, he wants to raise taxes on a million small businesses including a lot in ohio, and that will result, according to a study by
the president's economic plan. now it's governor romney's turn. he has a five-point plan for the economy and he says he'll create a whopping 12 million jobs in four years. i have said before, i will say it again, that's a ridiculous pledge and i'll wear a dress for a week if it happens. why? because our anemic economic growth cannot support a huge surge in job creation. not without something very substantial changing and nobody predicts that to happen. here's the five points that president romney -- that presidential candidate romney is focusing on. first, energy independence. he says this will create millions of jobs in areas like oil, gas and manufacturing. second, trade. romney will open new markets and create a level playing field by pressure countries like china. three, he'll improve education, retrain workers and help the unemployed. these will likely be state run initiatives, however. four, etch' slash spending to cut the deficit and shrink the deficit. five, he'll had help small businesses that includes repealing obama care and cutting taxes. let's give romney the benefits of any doubt
that connects the economy in the states that matter. >> carly, you have governor romney not focusing on trust. do you want another four years like we have had. >> this is not the time to double down and trickle down on policies that failed us. it's time for bold changes that measure up to the moment and bring america's families up that the future will be better than the past. >> rachel brings up a good point focusing on ohio. 7% unemployment in that state. how much credit does the president deserve for improving conditions in battleground states? >> that important state has a republican governor that's done the opposite of what obama claims he's going to do. he's lowered taxes and closed budge elt deficits. i find the trust comment hard. president obama promised we would have 4.2% economic growth right now. we have 2%. he promised an unemployment rate lower than we have. on the issue of trust, what is going on with regard to libya. we have an extraordinary thing where the president comes out on friday and says i directed that everything possible should be done to aid our embassy under attack.
. there were romney supporters, obama supporters. the number-one issue was the economy with a special focus on deficit and debt. here's some of the folks we spoke to. take a listen. >> right now there are a lot of issue that i care about. for example, i am environmentally conscious. i've been a vegan since i was 9. i care about clean energy, a lot about things like that. looking around at the unemployment rate, it's so scary to me that there are people who can't get jobs. even though there are a lot of other issues i care about, i think that should be the number-one concern. yes, it's a little better, but i don't think it was where it should be at all. >> you're a romney supporter? >> yes, romney. >> euyou're a romney vegan? >> yes, i am. >> that's awesome. start a romney vegan facebook page. i want to see how many romney vegans there are out. there the romney camp should start this up now. >> the older generation, i think they want reagan back, right? everyone like votes for reagan as the ideal republican candidate. i don't think necessarily -- one way or the other, you know, i never lived
, the des moines register has not in decades endorsed a republican. they have said that governor romney, and they make interesting points about it's the economy that's most important to people, and even though both president obama and governor romney are harvard law graduates and good family men, when it comes to running a business and getting people back to work, which at least 23 million people are concerned about, governor romney is the man for the job and the des moines register is endorsing governor romney. >> huge in iowa, potentially. obviously completely stuck in the polls, the president seems to have had more people coming out in early voting but the statewide polling in iowa shows romney gaining. six electoral votes, it could come down to a margin of victory in the single digits. this one matters. it's also the case that the des moines register has gotten this endorsement correct in five of the -- all five of the last races. they endorsed al gore in 2000 and he got most of the popular vote. 80s pretty good bellwether. >> we're going to take a look at that in the next hour. the
. economy getting better, economy getting better. romney camp has got to figure out a way to blunt that somehow. >> i think paul ryan and mitt romney have done a very good job talking about what a real recovery looks like. what a recovery in the early 1980s began to look like when you are creating hundreds of thousands of jobs. not 150,000 jobs. or 100,000 jobs. i think people know what a recovery feels like around their own kitchen tables. that's why that ad that ran with the family just sitting in silence at dinner was so powerful during this election cycle because it was the anxiety that so many people feel, bill, regardless of politics. they know how their own family feels. >> bill: that's why governor romney is running strong in so many places. it's all about the economy. you don't disagree with me that libya is going to matter? no matter what comes out? >> well, i think it its actually played out already as far as the way the people think. i don't think we will learn anything else. the drip, drip, drip has been pretty interesting in the last few days. again, the press totally
the economy in ohio. on the integrity issue, the trust issue, mitt romney this week went to defiance, ohio, an told a group of 11,000 people, jeep is about to move all of their production overseas. i read that somewhere. not at all true. it's okay for a candidate it make a flub. but to not correct it, to not say i was wrong about that, the candidate went back, the campaign was asked, are you sure the candidate actually meant that? because that doesn't seem to be true. no response clearing that up from the campaign. there's been a truthfulness problem with the romney campaign that connects even to the very basic issues like the economy in the states where it most matters. >> and carly fiorina, from the other side you have governor romney not focusing on trust, saying look at the record. do you want another four years like what we've had? this is how he's teeing it up down the stretch. >> this is not the time to double down on the trickle-down policies that have failed us. it's time for new bold changes that measure up to the moment and that can bring american families the certainty that the
that jumps out is people started judging romney the winner on the economy. he's opened now a high lead over obama on the economy. if that overrides their concerns about his personality and character. then there's not much obama can do. but they had had luck with romney's personal negatives before that. so there's potential there. >> i wonder -- i was thinking about this with the appearances in ohio. looking at the economic numbers in ohio. it's been funny at the personality level to see john kasich talk about how much better things have gotten under his leadership. we'd really to prefer you say things are going badly. as the campaign shrinks down to a small number of swing states and they have that improving economic numbers problem as it were on the republican side in florida and ohio, does that change the type of argument they need to make about change? about why mitt romney is the guy who should be trusted to do things differently than barack obama? >> they are hitting it there. basically things are on the upswing in ohio. and to keep it going, you need to change leadership in washington
. what can be done by president romney to change the trajectory of this economy with more than a job creation machine? >> number one data piss-off the fiscal cliff. so we don't have a severe recession but simplify the tax code. fire ben bernanke to get somebody who realizes to cheapen the dollar is not the way to wealth. >> he could force him out. >> harry truman showed you could fire the fed chairman. [laughter] as well as a general. [laughter] lou: none of that has the immediate effect of those who have suffered under this administration. those who don't have ajob and are underemployed giving up then we have a group of ceos speaking up for the multinationals we would like to go to the simpson thing. we want to raise taxes. reject it --ejected by both republicans and democrats. we hear from business leaders they come up with this. >> how low do the fine balance? i will take that. remove the tax shelter and cut the top rate. >> rahm it -- romney is already proposing nonsense. >> we have a huge tax increase aready slowing the ecomy down. to the clutter the tax code everyone can declar
's about the economy. and in ohio, both governor kasich and mitt romney are right. governor kasich is right that his policies, fundamentally different than obama's, lower taxes, close the budget deficit, make -- create a regulatory environment that encourages investment and certainty, that those are improving the situation. governor romney is also, however, correct that there's a long way to go and that there are lots of people in ohio and elsewhere around this country who are unemployed or underemployed, and we have huge progress. and 2% gdp growth is nothing to crow about. in fact, it's less growth than in 2011 and less than 2010. >> all the economic news is because of republican policies and all of the bad economic news is because of democratic policies? >> you said it. not me. >> it's funny. it's just disingenuous. >> how much of this is a problem in terms of how people feel, rachel? we see more economic optimism in the country and, yet, people are still feeling like the obama record is lackluster, and you look at the recovery, still not feeling like it's robust enough. >> yeah, and you
and get jobs again and get this economy growing. >> reporter: mitt romney's solution would be to ease government regulations to encourage lenders to offer refinancing to more homeowners. >> foreclosures are the lowest in five years. >> reporter: president obama wants to expand refinancing programs for borrowers. he wanthe wants to include morts owned by banks. obama also wants lenders to offer unemployed homeowners a one one-year grace period from foreclosure. >> i'm feeling very abandoned. >> reporter: juneau isn't sure either plan can help him in time. he hopes the bank will agree to sell his house for $200,000 less than he owes. >> all the taxes i've paid in the past and all the things i did for my country in the service is wasted. my life feels like it's a waste. >> reporter: with a failed business and a foreclosure on his credit report, juneau won't be able to even consider buying another home for at least three years. manuel bojorquez, cbs news, ft. lauderdale, florida. >> brennan: coming up, a reporter's notebook on afghan farmers' dependence on illicit crops. >> brennan: plant
and romney is the businessman to get the economy going but he said that he's going to reverse frank d.o.d. and i think he was -- dodd-frank and he said that he was going to maintain and that was tendering to the independents. the best i can tell he and ryan's policy simulate britain's which is in a full blown recession. so non-can tell what romney is saying or speaking. i think he says whatever to close the deal on wall street and i think he is saying anything to close the deal to the presidency. host: go ahead. guest: i think mitt romney has been pretty straightforward on where he is going to be focusing his presidency in terms of the five-point plan to get america going again and rebuild and bring 23 million jobs. regarding dodd-frank there were good ideas in there but it needs to be reworked. the whole concept of going in and legitimizing the too big to fail bank should concern all americans. so there is definitely some changes that need to be made in that piece of legislation. host: next up is kenneth from north carolina on our line for democrats. caller: good morning. i appreciat
report proof the economy is improving. mitt romney calls it a sad reminder the economy is at a virtual standstill. >>> big news out of the district about the speed camera fines. what anyone who drives in d.c. will want to hear, trust me. good morning and welcome to news 4 midday. i'm keith russell. >> i'm barbara harrison. it's friday, november 2nd, 2012. we begin with two developing stories. police shot and killed two suspects one in d.c. and the other in stafford. we begin with a man stabbed an officer. megan mcgrath is live on the scene from the latest from washington's brookland section. >> reporter: when police repond to 911 calls they are not sure what they are going encounter, what is going to be happening on the scene when they arrive. that was certainly the case this morning. a veteran police officer and his partner were in harm's way responding to a domestic assault call here. the officers were attacked by the suspect. one fired in self-defense. police chief kathy lanier hugged one of her officers on the scene. investigators pick up a hoels ere and place t in the trunk of an
in ohio is the economy. mitt romney flat out opposed the rescue, although he's tried to reinvent that time and time again. it's not surprising he would lie about car manufacturing jobs going to china. if he admits the the truth, he'll be finished in that state. so he's out there creating a story, telling people that a plant is going to be shut down by chrysler and the jobs are going overseas. nothing could be further from the truth. this is just falling right into the hands of the obama campaign. you can't make this stuff up. but you see if he were to talk about the 1100 jobs that chrysler added in detroit, then of course, that would be complimenting the president on job creation and saving the automobile industry. it's a tight spot for romney and his surrogates. get your cell phones out. tonight's question, is lying the only way mitt romney can win ohio? text a for yes, b for no to 622639. you can go to our blog online. we'll bring you results later on in the program. i'm joined by a couple sources who know all about automobile rescue. that is former governor ted strickland of ohio. and a

, republicans have clearly emphasized mitt romney has emphasized the economy. one thing, i want to ask about this it's not been brought up much, the obama campaign has made strategic decision not t try to blame the economy on bush even though let's face it, most of the damage occurred just as he was leaving office. >> he had to come up with a new message. >> point is the economy tanked in late '07 or -- mid '08. obama president campaign not been trying to say this is bush's fault. but a lot of people recognize that there was clearly republican involvement there. i'm just wondering if women voters are more likely to say to themselves, i'mor the economy but i don't trust the republican guy because the economy tanked when a republican was in office. >> for one thing, look, i think republicans and democrats are both to blame for where our country is today. it wasn't one party that set up the $16 trillion debt. i think president obama put the pedal to the metal but both parties for blame. i think that's where we are as a country, we have two different choices. what mitt romney is talking about is
higher than forecasted. mitt romney has won the economy, not by a huge margin. generally, that's a good thing for a challenger. he's won the issue of bipartisan. i think president obama's trying to close some of that ground. but people will say that the ability to capture the center is important to them. they seem to be tilting a little bit in mitt romney's favor. those are good fundamentals. they don't make up, in my mind, as best we can tell for the very formidable electoral college math that is working much more in president obama's favor. gwen: what do you think about that, jackie? >> i agree. we could be looking at, we're all sort of talking and gaming an electoral college victory for the president who loses the popular vote. does anybody really think that's going to happen? >> i do, yes. >> or are you wishing that to happen? >> well, we are journalists. it's certainly possible. and i think boarding towards probably. >> the hurricane damage won't affect the electoral vote but it will take some electorals from barack obama. >> it could drive up the popular vote. >> i would say a pop
direction. if we keep talking about the economy we're going to lose. >> that's the first mitt romney anti-obama ad said this year. quoting the president as saying if we keep talking about the economy we're going to lose. here's what president obama actually said. >> senator's mccame's campaign actually said and i quote, if we keep talking about the economy, we're going to lose. >> he was quoting somebody else, to criticize the quote. the romney campaign intentionally took president obama totally out of context. totally out of context so that was a complete lie and the response when they got called out on it was not to cut a new version or pull it down their response was to say they meant to do that and mr. romney personally defended that ad and it's still on their website. with seven days before the election not be a surprise that the closing argument is an ad that even the usually-unoffendable beltway press is calling a flat-out lie. it's not clear at this point how much campaigning is left before election day given the storm bettering the east coast right now. both candidates have offic
